Camping

Susquehannock Campground is primitive and sometimes crowded‚ others call it cozy. There is very limited parking so be prepared to unload and then move your vehicle to a remote parking space.

There are no: showers, electric hook-ups, RV’s, internet hot-spots, trailers of any sorts, bad attitudes, etc.

There are: trees with roots, hilly slopes, the occasional rock, great views, lots of friendly riders, vault toilets, and hand pump water.

A good rule of thumb is your will have room for one vehicle on-site for every four people. The larger your group, the more primo the space you are assigned. Register individually but please include your desired group name, shop name, or club name so we can place your group together. Spell it out though, no acronyms; “Chicago Area Mountain Bike Association” instead of “CAMBA.”.

Please plan on arriving: Thursday, 2 p.m.-8 p.m.; Friday, 12 p.m.-8 p.m.

If you are looking for a nearby, family-friendly camping option, consider Seven Points Campground Loop. Operated by the Army Corps of Engineers, it provides improved RV and tent camping with electricity and running water, including hot showers. This location is approximately three miles away from the expo area, but you can ride on trails the entire way to the campsite. That’s right, we added a trail. Ridge Camp and Meadow Camp are closest to the trails. If this sounds like what you are looking for you must purchase a day pass to Dirt Fest and reserve your campsite independently through the Army Corp of Engineers.

There are other area local campgrounds as well: Woodland Campground and Raystown Family Campground. Be sure to check the proximity of the campground relative to the event before booking!

If you are staying elsewhere or not spending the night and you want access to the vendors, expo, events and demos, purchase a Weekend Pass wristband that is good for all three days of Dirt Fest. It gets you demo bikes, live music, beer, nutrition clinics, skills clinics, and any other events you want to attend. Day-of registration is $5 extra.
